Water Lilies is a beautifully observed, intelligent and provocative portrait of female adolescence. Set in the competitive world of synchronised swimming, three 15- year-old girls experience first love, friendship and rivalry in very different ways.
There was no build up or tension, and whatever 'tension' there was seemed to constantly fizzle away with these unlikeable and strange characters.
Very disappointing ending. Not sure if it was intended, but the style is so...dead. Don't bother watching, it doesn't get better.
